Just because you’re from another planet, inherited miraculous powers from a science experiment, or gained possession of a sentient super staff doesn’t mean you’re invulnerable to COVID-19. The superheroes of The CW know the importance of proper face coverings during a pandemic, and they’re all masking up in a new series of posters released by the network today. In the case of Superman, this is the first time we’ve seen any piece of promotion for his show.
Speaking of Joel McHale….After some early years dabbling in cheap Internet Flash-toon comedy, Dan Harmon finally broke into the Network Machine with Community, a sitcom whose premise only seemed simple from the outside. The basic structure was that of a disgraced lawyer heading back to community college and holding study sessions with a gang of eclectic misfits…but it soon become apparent it was more than that.

A pandemic is a global problem, and it affects life in Japan just as badly as it does here. Animated shows have been less affected by the shutdown of studios — when you’re creating imaginary worlds, you don’t need sets, you just need a Cintiq in a home office. It’s even possible for the actors to record the dialogue from their houses, if they have the right equipment.
To the surprise of no one, Games Done Quick has decided to postpone its summer charity event. The plan is still to hold it in the summer, but around August instead of June, assuming things get somewhat better by then. But wait a minute…if there was ever a time we needed a charity event that attracts millions of viewers AND dollars, it’s now, right?
